Tired of waiting to accrue days off in order to take a short family vacation? Do you have more plans than you’ve got PTO? It’s time to break free and consider a company with unlimited vacation time.
While start-ups have cornered the market on unlimited PTO policies, there are some big companies getting in on the trend. General Electric started to offer what it calls a “permissive approach” to paid time off such that there is no longer a limit set on the number of vacation, sick and personal days that executives and those in the so-called senior professional band may take.
Plus, the unlimited vacation policy extends beyond just Silicon Valley. From New York to Ohio, employees are enjoying a newfound freedom to plan the vacation schedule that works best for them.
If you’re considering a job change, check out these companies with unlimited vacation.

What Employees Say: “Glassdoor is a great place for career growth, making friends, and experiencing new foods. I love our dog friendly office. It’s so fun! We’re also right beside the ocean which is just beautiful. One of my favorite parts about Glassdoor is our employer’s emphasis on employee wellness and work life balance. Unlimited PTO allows me to take sick days without stress and the freedom to work my own hours lets me schedule my day how I like it. We also have a personal trainer on-site 3 days a week. I’m obsessed with her class. But my favorite part about working for Glassdoor is I enjoy showing up to work every day. Although I have the option to work from home some days if I like (I have a long commute), I love coming to the office because my co-workers are my friends. We also have standing desks: major plus. I love you Glassdoor!” —Current Data Scientist

The company is still young enough to be nimble, but big enough to put resources towards what it wants to accomplish. I feel comfortable being myself, and the people here all have something to nerd out about, even if it isn’t always games. The dress code is casual, but everyone is super passionate. It has the opportunity to make new things, and carve out your own mark. The campus is amazing. The meal plan has helped me be healthier than I’ve ever been (even though the pizza makes me want to choose otherwise), and I couldn’t imagine any other way to bond with my coworkers than using our awesome computer and peripherals to battle it out on any number of different games.” —Current Operations Employee

What Employees Say: “Placester is currently, and has been a great company to work for. Management is extremely flexible when it comes to time off and there is plenty of room to grow in any position that you’re in. The negative comments stating that current employees are being “forced” to write positive reviews are completely bogus. I am certain that these comments are coming from employees who were terminated for acting unprofessional in the workplace.” —Current Sales Employee

What Employees Say: “I’ve been working at UpRight Law for almost a year now. I’ve grown very close with all of my coworkers and it truly feels like a family. UpRight prides themselves on their fun environment, and rightfully so. There are parts of every day where it doesn’t feel like I’m at work but joking with friends. Even the managers are part of the family. Instead of just talking about work, they ask about family/life events and truly care about you and your growth in your career. Their goal isn’t just for the company to grow, but for you to grow with the company.” —Current Senior Client Consultant
